Week 208

Shayne Oliver / Hood by Air in New York City

Week 208

Shayne Oliver, creator of Hood by Air, in New York City. Shayne has had a meteoric rise from dropping out of FIT to commanding a brand that boasts fans like Kayne West, Rhianna & Kendrick Lamar. Shayne was quiet and reserved when I came by his downtown headquarters to take his portrait. HBA is nothing short of unique. I enjoyed photographing him ensconced in racks of his work. – JD

Week 14

This is a new cityscape from atop the Empire State Building. I woke up at 4am to get there at 5:30 and this is the second of the two pictures I put together from the shoot. It was crazy to be up there alone so early. The wind was ridiculously strong and it deterred me from using my 4×5 camera. The fact that I was completely alone up there outside was actually scary. It was so high up, and so early in the morning, that the city didn’t seem to feel real at that point. Overall a crazy experience that was one of a kind – JD
